Moviehole.net is giving Sly fans something to cheer about as they report that Rambo IV has been greenlit and will begin shooting in Sofia, Bulgaria in January 2006 as Nu Image/Millennium Films acquire film rights from Miramax/ Dimension Films.
The report from Moviehole continues as follows:
Sylvester Stallone signed with Nu Image/Millennium Films to begin ‘Rambo IV’ in May 2005, stating that the production company had optioned a book for the new ‘Rambo’, for which he has adapted a complete script, likening it to vengeance films like ‘Deliverance’ and ‘Straw Dogs’.
According to Stallone, the new plotline sees the character of Rambo as having “assimilated into the tapestry of America”, living with his family – including daughter – in relative peace for the past fifteen years but still working for the military, when work pressures force him to move his family to the American outback. The Navajo-Indian former Green Beret and his family are then subject to an attack by white-supremacists, and Rambo has to risk life-and-limb in rescuing his 10-year old daughter from being held hostage.
